The M Machine unveil debut album Glare on Mat Zo’s label

After much anticipation, The M Machine have unveiled their debut album Glare across all download and streaming platforms.

Glare marks a shift from The M Machine’s previous DJ-oriented style toward a more cerebral, experimental sound. The 12-track LP is comprised of indie-leaning, melody-driven tracks that tell stories of relationships beginning and ending, cultures colliding and how humans interact with one another.

The way Glare has been released tells its own story too, originally released late last year via the dedicated Glare.fm web app designed by former group member Andy Coenen. Glare.fm is a mobile web application that utilizes geolocation to bring listeners together, requiring personal mutual participation to unlock music from the new album.

Fans of The M Machine found themselves connecting and exploring through the process of consuming the new album. Using the app, users distributed Glare to fellow users while in their physical presence. To receive the album, it had to be personally shared from another user. Every time a user shared the app, they unlocked two additional songs, ultimately unlocking the entire album.

The M Machine’s unique distribution method restored the element of human interaction in peer-to-peer sharing of music, bringing fans together for their respective discovery experiences.
Fusing technology and advances in geolocation capabilities with music, Glare.fm was an industry milestone that restored intangibles lost in the digital age while presenting fans with an anticipated body of work at no cost.

Mat Zo releases new ‘Mad EP’ ahead of North American tour

Mat Zo releases MAD EP and announces new North American tour dates

Mat Zo returns with a frenzied new project, aptly titled MAD. The EP is just that, sonic landscapes uncontainable by modern electronic music standards. The forthcoming project is Matan Zohar testing limits yet again, treating production masterfully while pushing tempo towards a glass ceiling with precision. Where his previous work has leaned toward the house end of the spectrum, Mat Zo veers towards broken-beat for his latest.

Easing into things, “Troglodyte” serves as the calm before the storm, a delicate introduction that builds with a teaser of what’s in store for listeners. The Foreign Beggars collaboration “Take It Back,” premiered exclusively by Zane Lowe on his Beats1 radio show, follows with a straight plunge into the calculated chaos before the title track “MAD” brings the project’s aesthetic full circle.

“MAD” is out today via Mat Zo’s own Mad Zoo label. Fans have a chance to hear the new material live on his MAD TOUR, which kicked off this month with a packed set at Nocturnal Wonderland, and will stop through major cities like New York, Vancouver and Boston before concluding in Los Angeles in November.
